From a discovery deep in the Peruvian jungle to sweet success : Meet the founders of Fortunato Chocolate | #625
So these two guys are in the jungles of Peru working for some oil company, when they stumble across a Cacao bean that’s been extinct for over 100 years. Without any chocolate knowledge whatsoever (well, no more than you and I!), they decided to start a premium chocolate brand, and Fortunato Chocolate was born. It even caught the attention of the late and great celebrity chef, Anthony Bourdain. It’s a Willy Wonka meets Indiana Jones episode 625 of The (13 year-old, award-winning) Small Business Big Marketing podcast.
